Special Saiidi Cane Session with Majda at Dance 101

Majda performs Raqs al Assaya at Nicola's Lebanese Restaurant, June 2011
Just announced -- a unique opportunity to learn the exciting art of Raqs al Assaya from a true master of the art!  

On December 5th and 12th, Majda Anwar will be teaching a special session at Dance 101 focused on the various ways in which a cane can be used to accent your belly dance performances.  These sessions will be appropriate for all skill levels, and can be taken together or separately.

Majda will dive into technique that includes the Egyptian folkloric martial art Tahtib, Reda-influenced combinations, and an exploration of the modern American Tribal Style moves (for example, the Reach & Sit) that are based on traditional cane work.
